Another sketch of Faye, started about a month ago. About 2'x3', NuPastel on Kraft paper. There's a lot of "issues" with it, but w/o the model, it's time to stop & start working it up into a proper drawing....
I put the "mature audience" warning on for those who are bothered by the dangly bits and lumps and crevices of life, intimacy, and trust - reproductive, mammary, intellectual, emotional, poetic, political, reasoned or unreasoned, what have you. There are lots of other places to find order, cleanliness, and capital "t" Truth, but this isn't really one of them.
A few words of wisdom
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

The blog name HalifaxCB comes from a handle I used to use on the Global View Forex Forum, which is a great site. If you have come here looking for Forex info, particularly on Kalman filtering, I'm out of the game, but stay and read about art. Or better yet, buy some. That's all I do now.
